How's this for dedication to the cause? E-mail from Wendy and Mick Campbell:
"We arrived at Little Wood Oxon at 1pm [30th]. With refreshment we sat down with a good view of the best territory and waited......and waited......at 2.30 HE made his first appearance with a brief flight around the top of the big Ash. We had to wait another 50 minutes before we saw him again, followed by another three flights before we left at 4pm: that is an average of one flight every 36 minutes; obviously conserving energy for the battles and courtship[s] to come!"
None of my 7 home bred specimens have emerged yet.
